What happens when there is more than one access right for the same object in ACL?

How does ACL behave when there is more than one access rights for the same object for the same group.

For example: There is two rights entries for the object 'partner' for the same group sale/manager, having different accesses.

res.partner.sale.manager      -     Partner        -      Sales / Manager

res.partner.crm.user         -          Partner     -        Sales / Manager

Which access right will be used?

It will take the access rights with OR condition of those 2 access lines

access1, base.model_res_partner,1,0,0,0
access2, base.model_res_partner,1,1,1,0

Output will be a OR condition of both access (1,1,1,0)

So, you should always overwrite existing access to satisfy your condition.
i.e. change the access available in odoo modules by using id="MODULENAME.EXISTING_ID"

E.g. to change access

base.access_res_partner_group_partner_manager,res_partner group_partner_manager,base.model_res_partner,base.group_partner_manager,1,1,1,0
